Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2014

Recommended Posts

Ulta's BF Ad is up!  http://www.ulta.com/blackfriday/

 

The only thing that appeals to me is the Benefit Bella Bamba set... but I already have it! 

Oh my goodness, I knew this would happen! They have the UD Big Fatty mascaras on sale for half off, and I just bought a few for my mom during the Sephora sale. If I manage to snag a few during the ulta event, I'll probably just send those back because this is a much better deal.

lol I like how some of their deals (5 for $5, 40% off the body shop) aren't really even Black Friday exclusive... The 5 for $5 has been going on for a while now and the body shop regularly runs 40% off or B2G1/B3G3 deals on their own site. I might pick up some of the Ogx macadamia shampoos and conditioners just because BOGO is always welcome with how much product I have to use in my hair, but it's not exactly making me jump up and down with happiness lol. (does anyone know why they switched their name from Organix? I'm assuming it was probably a trademark issue) 

 

 

Looks like it was labeling standard issues. Some saw the name as suggesting the products were organic, when they weren't. It was either change the name or not be allowed to sell their products in CA.

That makes sense - it is misleading (and pretty silly) to call yourself "Organix" if you aren't really organic, but it never crossed my mind as an issue since I'm not the type that eats all organic and hunts down all natural/organic products to use. I would say it's also pretty silly to bar a company from selling just because of their (non-offensive) name, but we live in a lawsuit-happy world where people can sue Red Bull for not really giving them wings and win, so... I only bought their macadamia line because I saw it while browsing Ulta and was curious over how it'd compare to the Macadamia products since it's at a much lower price point.

I'm the same way and never thought anything of the name. I was confused by the name change and did a double take the last time I picked up a curl cream from the argan line. I spent a few moments in the aisle wondering if it was the same brand or if the store had replaced it with their own line of similarly packaged and name generic.

LOL I had the exact same reaction when I was looking at an Ulta ad. "Ogx?? Wait... Is that a knockoff of Organix? In the exact same packaging...?"

Does Ulta usually do separate deals for Cyber Monday?

 

I want to place a big Ulta order (I have points to spend!) but I'm debating doing it on Friday or Monday...

I think they do have separate deals for cyber monday but I can't remember 100%. They do have a cyber monday link on their site but it hasn't been updated for this year yet, it just says that the one from last year is over (http://www.ulta.com/cybermonday/)

Are the ulta deals also available online or in store only? I never really shop at Ulta so I have no idea.

 

Thanks a bunch!

 

Yes, they are online, too!  Sometimes there are certain "in-store only" deals, but they are labeled as such.

If I remember correctly, Ulta's Cyber Monday was better for me than Black Friday last year.

i wonder if birchbox will do that $50 off any purchase again like last year around thanksgiving. i remember a lot of people stalked the site all day, and they didn't have it on the actual thanksgiving day.

Yes! That was fun. I was able to snag the LE Snow Day box for free last year. It was a great box, especially for $0.

I don't think they won, they settled. Settlement lawyers have figured out that almost every company will settle rather than deal with a bullshit lawsuit because it costs them time, effort, and money to go to court, so it's just as cost-effective to settle.

How did the Birchbox deal work? Was it like hidden items you had to find?

Sort of. They had a special holiday shop with a bunch of gift ideas, and randomly in place of a product there would be a promo with a code for $50 off any purchase. It was a different code released every few hours that was programmed to only work X amount of times.

 

Someone please correct me if my memory is mistaken. :)

Thanksgiving, when you can purchase a six-piece set of the brand's Revolution Lipstick for $90. (The set includes the shades Anarchy, Catfight, F-Bomb, Naked, Native, and Turn On.) Then on Black Friday, you can pick up the Ammo Palette, the Smoked Palette, and a deluxe sample of Perversion Mascara for $30. In addition, Urban Decay is also offering free shipping and

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
